Kevin “K.O.” Olusola may look familiar as he’s part of the platinum chart topping act Pentatonix. With his fellow band mates, Kevin has seen his career go from being a student at Yale that won the reality show “The Sing Off”, to mainstays on the Billboard album chart with a Grammy award and sold-out tour dates worldwide under his belt.
Kevin, the incredible beat boxer and cello player for the group, has put out his first five-song solo EP through RCA. Spurred on by crowd reaction to his musical interlude during the Pentatonix tour, Kevin decided to go one step further and release the very unique, incredible rhythmic The Renegade EP. The songs, done entirely with Cello and Vox, includes covers of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” Demi Lovato’s “Heart Attack,” “All of Me” by John Legend, “Julie-O” by The Turtle Island Quartet and the original track “The Renegade.” Said Kevin to the Hollywood Reporter, “"I am a singer, first and foremost, but the medium happens to be the cello. I’m really just trying to sing with my instrument.”
